My Darling wee Ruby is one of my favourite things  to scrap at the moment and today i wanted to share with you how I added dimension to my Memory Maze Chipboard(MMCB) using Distress Paint and Ink

First thing to do was to decide on what MMCB I was going to use, which is not by any means easy!!!   so many choices! and collect other products I wanted to use.

Shake up your distress paint really well and add some to your craft mat.

Then chose a stamp and apply paint.  Don’t add to much or you will not get the detail

Stamp onto (MMCB)

and dry off with a heat gun,  if you don’t have a heat gun you can set these aside for a while to dry.

DON’T forget to apply water to your stamp RIGHT AWAY!  you need to clean this with a cloth otherwise the paint will stay.

Chose some coloured Distress ink and colour your (MMCB)

Here you can see the end result.  I have also just gently wiped over top to take off any excess ink off the paint.  The Sweet (MMCB) has been embossed.
